Moonlight Trilogy Book One.

Though she shares the bloodlines of both Fae and Wolf, Kiara Morrigan O’Conaill refuses to claim her place in the Fae courts or submit to the animal within. Witnessing the murder of her Fae mother two years ago drives her back into those worlds, to search for answers and revenge.

Devlin McClure lives for one thing—the Pack. When their leader, the Cadeyrn, disappears, desperation sends Devlin to the last person he should be asking for help—the Cadeyrn’s estranged daughter, Kiara.

Kiara and Devlin are drawn to each other by fate and destined to embrace the very thing that threatens to rip their worlds apart. Now, Kiara will have to decide which is stronger, blood or moonlight?

Opening Teaser

"Thanks for nothing!" I slammed down the phone, then picked it back up and screamed into the handset once more. "Asshole!"
As if on cue, the office door opened and Reese breezed in like a tornado, the local paper tucked under her arm. Her hair, the perfect shade of cotton-candy pink, trailed down her back in a waterfall of curls from the taut ponytail atop her head. The dagger strapped to her thigh was the only indication there was more to the woman than met the eye. Perching herself on the corner of my desk, she studied me with eyes flecked with shades of midnight, turquoise, and powder blue. She was a beautiful representation of full-blooded fae and my best friend.


I received Blood and Moonlight in return for an honest review as part of the Blog Tour Hosted by Bewitching Book Tours. Kiara is half werewolf and half fae but she grew up in the fae court knowing that her father passed away when she was little. When her mother is murdered the queen banishes Kiara from the court sending her on a search for the fae named Isleen who promised to give her answers but she's not seen her since. When the alpha werewolf shows up at her office asking for her help in finding his alpha who also happens to be her father who she thought was dead.

Kiara isn't thrilled with the idea of helping find the father she didn't know was still alive. It's no secret that the wolves and fae don’t see eye to eye. With her bodyguard insistence that she might be able to find the answers to the many questions she's been searching for she agrees. With her help Devlin knows they should be able to find the Cadeyrn of his pack, before it's too late. When others go missing including several of the wolves, along with attempts on Kiara's life. However the closer they get to finding the Cadyrn the stronger the attraction between Kiara and Devlin grows. Together they will take an adventure that will change their lives forever.

I love the concept for Blood and Moonlight maybe because I've been waiting for years for the mixed blood main character. Kiara brings a perfect mix of the wolf and the fae she has all the emotions I would expect a character of mixed blood who hasn't been welcomed by the pack or the court. I love the romance between Devlin and Kiara it's a fun added mix to the mystery that the pair is trying to solve. The book though short I found very well written, it leaves you wanting more but feeling satisfied for the moment. Overall it's a great first chapter in Kiara's life and I can't wait to read more about her adventures 

Rating 5 out of 5
